Yeah, you drink DIET soda. Sugar/HFCS is incredibly bad for you. Fruit generally has sugar in lesser amounts than processed food like soda and it has other benefits like fiber and vitamins. Why don't you switch to 4-5 cans of regular soda and see what happens. Hint: You'd become diabetic. Thats like eating a tub of ice cream worth of sugar everyday.
